Mamaro Hosoda's films are always triumphs of animation. Known for Wolf Children, Summer Wars, and even The Digimon Movie, his films have a distinct and flowing art style that's always very pleasing to the eye. On top of that,...
Over the past few years Disney has acquired and developed a collection of film properties and franchises that basically means it owns the world. At Cinema Con the company basically bragged about its upcoming slate of films an...
I understand giving an author some say over their book's adaptation, but this is getting ridiculous. It seems that the production of these films is so awful, any of the slightly talented people involved are being chased off b...
It seems like I'm talking about Spider-Man every other day, so I care a little less every time. But you know what brings me back into the fold? Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the guys who're pretty much involved with every movie...
Oh man, The Little Prince is one of my absolute favorite books, so when I heard they were making a new animated film version, my attention went up. The first trailer, while entirely in French, gave an impressive look at the ...
Avengers: Age of Ultron is almost upon us (and in some parts of the world already is), so it's just about time to start frothing at the mouth over the next big Marvel thing, which happens to be Peyton Reed's Ant-Man. Before a...
Something about the ubiquity of The Simpsons lends itself to some weird post-modern fan creations, such as the popular Bartkira project. Recently, one of the more noteworthy projects has been the independent comic, Die Homer,...
I'm seeing Avengers tomorrow, Star Wars has just had a new trailer, and Fast and Furious 7 has made more money than every country in Scandinavia combined. In this world of blockbuster juggernauts, Jerry Bruckhe...
If you were hankerin' for more LEGO movies, we're getting a huge chunk of them all at once. Since WB's first big animated effort (for its smaller affiliate group), The LEGO Movie, did so well in theaters, we're not only getti...
There are moments of Thank You for Playing that are so painful because the documentary feels so personal. It's about Joel Green, a boy with terminal brain cancer, and how his parents try to cherish the little joys in life whi...
Brad Bird may have gotten his start at Pixar, but the guy is a fantastic action director as Ghost Protocol and The Incredibles showed us, and this new trailer for Tomorrowland demonstrates that the film is taki...
For those who care about the happenings at the Cannes Film Festival, the past few days has been very exciting. Late last week parts of the official program was unveiled, and today the members of the jury has been made pu...
At a certain point in Erik Shirai’s documentary The Birth of Sake, it becomes apparent that the film isn't just about the art of making of sake. This is common in movies that are about making something—food, art, ...
It's offcial: Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve will write Marvel's upcoming Captain Marvel adaptation, the company confirmed today. The two women are certainly qualified – Perlman took the first pass at the Guardians of t...
The man who delivered the greatest presidential speech in the history of cinema is returning to the franchise he delivered it in. Bill Pullman will be coming back for the Independence Day sequel and joining him is Judd Hirsch...
The first Fant4stic trailer was more hit or miss than anything. I dug the science fiction overlay, but it was missing all of the FF's inherent goofballery. This newest trailer doesn't have any fun either, but it's not trying...
I can't say I'm too enthused about Jurassic World as I see more and more of it. Maybe if it wasn't a Jurassic Park film I'd be excited for what basically looks like a Predator remake with dinosaurs, some child...
So what did you think of that first trailer? The majority seems to swing toward apathy, but I really dug it. It looks a bit weird, more sterile than anything, but I'm hoping that'll ease up during the year. If the film can ca...
I don't know if you know, but those Star Wars movies are kinda a big deal at the moment. There was a new trailer for Star Wars; The Force Awakens that the internet is still dissecting line by line, there's a new video game th...
Last week, Furious 7 crossed a billion (with a b) dollars worldwide over 17 days. That makes it Universal's first film in history to cross that mark through its first run in theaters. Also, it's now the fastest (heh) to reach...
Thanks to the leak a few days ago, WB was forced to reveal their hand early before their big planned event in theaters. Everyone has opinions about this, and most of the Flixist staff here really didn't like its overtly dark...
I went into Unfriended expecting garbage. I told multiple people that I was on my way to the screening, and they asked why. I told them I didn’t know, but I was expecting terrible things. The trailer compared itself to ...
